A Sandbridge Family Tradition

We have many families who have turned an initial Sandbridge visit into an annual tradition. The surf, sun, and sheer beauty of the area is the perfect place to gather with loved ones and spend quality time together.

Olivia Benson’s family began their Sandbridge tradition when she was less than a year old. Year after year the family returned to our little slice of paradise to make priceless memories. One of Olivia’s favorite Sandbridge memories is from 2018. On the very same beach she grew up visiting, her (now) husband proposed! Her family was staying in Silver Sands and her cousins were staying nearby in another rental property; “We were able to come share the news with all of my cousins and aunts and uncles which was SO special! The year after, we rode on bikes down to the exact place we got engaged!”

The Benson family has since added a new beach buddy—Olivia and her husband now get to share the magic of Sandbridge with their son! We are ecstatic Olivia is able to add another generation to such an awesome family tradition.

Sandbridge is an incredible place, and we are very thankful we can be a part of your family traditions. We love seeing photos of families and friends creating memories at the beach! Feel free to share your favorite Sandbridge stories with us.

Blue Pete’s

1400 N Muddy Creek Road


 Bayside brunch? Sign me up! Regularly referred to as the local’s secret, Blue Pete’s is located next to the water in Pungo.

Their brunch specials are not only limited to their incredible food—their delicious brunch cocktail specials great as well! Local seafood can be found all over the menu. Some of Blue Pete’s favorites include the brisket dip, hot honey chicken biscuit, and redneck bennie. Head on over to Blue Pete’s for brunch on Saturdays or Sundays between 10:00am and 3:00pm.

This restaurant is fun for the whole family. You and your friends or little ones will love exploring the beautiful Creekside property after a delectable meal. Be sure to say hi to the turtles in the creek when you visit!

 The Bee & The Biscuit is a charming original c.1919 cottage restaurant in the main intersection of Pungo. This peaceful slice of heaven is perfect for those in need of a little downtime and comfort food. The Bee & The Biscuit offers breakfast and lunch all day long, so the entire menu is up for grabs no matter what time of day you visit. A delicious variety of freshly made biscuits, benedicts, omelets, breakfast sweets, sandwiches, salads and seasonal specials await!

While the Bee & The Biscuit is busy on the weekends, the beautiful garden is a great spot to relax and enjoy a coffee, bloody mary, or mimosa. There are also games provided! Because the Bee & The Biscuit is a smaller venue, groups with over 7 guests will be split into multiple tables. There is a private room available to reserve for private events—visit the Bee and the Biscuit website for more.

The Bee & The Biscuit is open from 7:00am to 2:00pm Tuesday through Sunday but closed on Mondays.


 Redhead Bay Café

605 Princess Anne Road


To get to Redhead Bay Café, you’ll drive through the fields of green in southern Virginia Beach’s farm country. This café is situated deep in the heart of Pungo and offers mouthwatering dishes created with some of the best local produce and seafood. Wash down hearty breakfast dishes or giant sandwiches with a bloody mary or mimosa while hanging out on the covered porch.

Redhead Bay Café also specializes in event catering and private parties, so be sure to consider them if you want to enjoy their cuisine from your rental!

Brunch is offered every weekend, Thursday through Monday, from 8:00am to 3:00pm. The café is closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays.


Three Notch’d Brewing

4561 Virginia Beach Blvd


 Three Notch’d Brewing has more than just beer! Grab some friends and head to Three Notch’d Brewing for some delicious food and mimosas. Many of their brunch specials are inspired by our delicious local seafood and southern cuisine—such as their loaded crab fries, chicken and waffles, and fried green tomatoes! The full menu can be found here: Three Notch’d Brunch Menu.

This spot is a great option for larger groups, since the brewery has plenty of room. Well-behaved, leashed pets are welcome outside on the brewery patio.

•  A Portable Speaker or Headphones 

Nothing makes a beach day or relaxing at your rental better than listening to your favorite tunes! Packing a small portable speaker or some headphones is always a good idea. Just remember to please be courteous to the families around you.

5 Benefits Of Booking A Vacation Rental Over A Traditional Hotel

When it comes to finding the perfect place to vacation (like Sandbridge or Virginia Beach, VA), the first step is finding the perfect place to stay! Vacation rentals offer a unique experience that can make your trip more enjoyable and memorable. As a professional vacation rental company, we’ll explain five key benefits of booking a vacation rental over a traditional hotel.

Better Value

When you compare what you get when booking a regular hotel room versus a vacation rental it all comes down to value. Vacation rentals often have full kitchens, laundry rooms, plenty of space, outdoor areas, and more that make it a better value. 

A great way to save money on vacation rentals is to book during the off-season. Here at Siebert Realty we offer lower rates during the slower months, which can be an excellent opportunity to save money while still enjoying all the benefits of a vacation rental! 

More Space

One of the biggest advantages of vacation rentals is the space they offer. Unlike hotels, which usually provide only one or two rooms, vacation rentals can have multiple bedrooms, bathrooms, and living areas. This is especially beneficial for families or groups of friends who want to spend time together but also value their privacy. Additionally, vacation rentals often have outdoor spaces such as patios or balconies, providing even more room to relax and enjoy the surroundings.

When planning an event like a wedding party or family reunion, having enough space is crucial. Traditional hotel rooms can feel less intimate when compared to renting a vacation rental. However, vacation rentals offer both the space and privacy necessary for these types of events. With more living space, a kitchen, extra bedrooms, and more, vacation rentals are the ideal choice when planning a special event or celebration.
PRO TIP: When booking a family reunion, wedding, or large group vacation call and speak to one of our reservationists. Inquire if two or three smaller homes are located next to each other. Having two homes next door to each other adds more space to utilize and more privacy for everyone.

Unique and Personalized Experiences

Vacation rentals come in all shapes and sizes, from cozy condos to luxurious beachfront villas. Each rental has its unique charm and personality, making your vacation feel more special and personalized. Whether you’re looking for an oceanfront beach house or a cozy condo to call home for a long weekend, a vacation rental can meet your needs.
Not only do you get a unique experience, but as a local vacation rental company, we can provide local recommendations to help personalize your stay. We also offer unmatched guest support in case you experience any issues during your stay. 

Do As The Locals Do

Hotels are often located in busy touristy areas, which can be convenient but can also limit your exposure to local neighborhoods and culture. On the other hand, vacation rentals are usually found in residential areas, offering a more desirable destination experience out of the hustle and bustle. You can explore local shops, restaurants, and attractions you might not have discovered otherwise. Staying in a vacation rental also allows you to experience the destination at your own pace. You can wake up, cook meals, and explore the area on your schedule. 


Vacation rentals often come with a variety of amenities that can enhance your stay. Some rentals have pools, hot tubs, or other recreational facilities; others have access to private beaches or hiking trails. Here at Siebert Realty, you can filter our Sandbridge Beach vacation rentals by amenities like oceanfront, boat docks, private pools, hot tubs and many more! 

Booking a vacation rental can offer a unique and enjoyable experience for travelers. From increased space and privacy to personalized experiences, the benefits of vacation rentals are numerous.
